Linkage: 1/3/11

Two themes this week: politics and writing.

Politics first:

NY Review of Books on the “volcano of rage” in Egypt.

Foreign Policy on CANVAS, a group of Serbian students whose tactics helped topple Milosevic and who are now attempting to export non-violent revolution around the world. See also: BBC News on Gene Sharp, whose writings on nonviolent protest have influenced CANVAS and the Egypt demonstrators.

Now, writing:

Procrastion, time management and writing.

In similar vein, Chris Hardwick of Nerdist looks at three self-help books to do with time management and working effectively.

Sam Bain (one of the writers of Peep Show) on Notiquette: the art of giving and receiving notes on scripts.

A short story by David Foster Wallace, and a long New Yorker piece on his life and work, struggles with depression and eventual suicide.
